Our Senior Common Room (SCR) is as lively and engaging as our student community and exists to enable people who are not an undergraduates to participate in the life of the College. We have a diverse membership that includes academics, postgraduates, University staff, alumni, and members from across the local Durham and North East communities. Our SCR supports students by offering summer travel bursaries, and many of our members act as College or career mentors.
Specific SCR events include regular weekly buffet lunches, twice termly formal dinners, wine-tasting events and trips in the North East. In addition, members are invited to College-wide events including gowned formal dinners, lectures and seminars, music and worship services, as well as student-led events such as John's Day, Brewfest and Bailey Ball.
